With all of the newest hot tool and color trends- damaged hair is a clear and unfortunate consequence. This can be super fun in the moment, but often times our hair will really have to sacrifice a lot of it’s health for these transformations! As major hair lovers, we’d never want to recommend that you stop experimenting and having fun with your hair, so instead we want to present 6 different things you can do to keep your hair healthy through the fun.
Eliminating split ends and repairing damaged hair can be an easy fix – these are three lifestyle changes/solutions that we highly recommend for your hair repairing journey!
3 Lifestyle Changes to Repair Damaged Hair:
1) Coming in hot at number 1 is you guessed it, a haircut! We know, we know, it can be difficult to let go of our length but it will only help you in the end! I used to be anti-haircut because I too didn’t want to lose length, but now I can’t go more than 6 weeks without a haircut.
The improvements you will see in the health of your hair is unmatched, when you cut off your split ends you will notice that your hair not only appears fuller, but it is fuller!
You won’t notice if your hair is growing if you hold on to split ends because even though your hair will continue to grow from your roots, overtime your ends will break off. Get that haircut- we promise it’s worth it.
2) Another thing you can do, which is also so understandably difficult, is reducing heat styling! I am someone who frequently heat styles my hair, but I’ve reduced it from almost daily, to 1-2 times per week.
The most crucial part of heat styling is ensuring that you are applying heat protectant each and every time- below we will recommend some of our favorites to ensure your hair is protected at all costs!
3) One super simple step that anyone can do is loosely braiding your hair at night! This is a great method because it will prevent potential breakage and tangling that could potentially occur while you’re sleeping.
What’s great about this is you’ll also wake up with some loose waves so your hair will not only be protected, but also styled to take on the day.
3 Products to Repair Damaged Hair:
Aside from simple lifestyle changes that can be made, we also wanted to introduce some of our favorite products that reduce breakage, prevent breakage, and just overall improve the integrity and health of your hair.
ColorWow Dream Cocktail Kale:
This leave-in strengthening treatment reduces breakage by 50% in one use! It aids in straightening your hair by 2x, acts as a heat protectant to prevent future breakage, and turns your blow dry into a anti-breakage treatment.
Keep in mind that the formulation of this product is activated when you blow dry so air drying your hair will take away some of the power of this product.
“I had used this product in the past and really loved. Stopped using it and found that I had a lot of breakage. I’m now back using it and it’s made a difference in a short time. I will not go without going forward. Amazing product.”
“In the last 6 months my hair has been falling out and become very matted every day, so much so I contemplated cutting it short as it was so unpleasant to brush through and all the hair that would come out. My hairdresser used Color Wow so I thought I may as well give it a go and I love the products. I’ve been using for about a month and my hair is no longer matted. This product makes it so silky soft and feel so much healthier until my next wash.”
Evo Happy Campers:
Achieving healthy hair shouldn’t have to be difficult – and this product makes it easy. Happy Campers is a leave-in, wearable hair treatment that does all of the work for you. This product provides moisture which in turn reduces frizz, strength which prevents breakage, protection from hot tools and UV, and memory for styling support.
With this wearable treatment, heat styling is not required so you can apply it to your hair and allow it to air dry or blow dry it- either method is equally as effective.
“I love this. The scent isn’t overpowering or too perfumey but it does have a nice scent. It leaves my hair easy to detangle, nourished at the ends and protected from heat. Will be buying again.”
“A new stylist opened my eyes to the Evo line of products. Having a sensitive scalp, I was hesitant to try yet another product for fear of wasting a lot of money on an unusable product. Thankfully I was able to purchase the travel size to try it. The product is perfect for my fine hair and sensitive scalp. It minimizes static and flyaways without leaving my hair greasy or weighed down.”
Davines Melu Hair Shield:
Heat protectant is the absolute best thing you can do for yourself and your hair. This is the most important product to incorporate into your hair routine as it works overtime to keep your hair healthy. Though hot tools can often times lead to damaged hair, this product will ease the damage ensuring your hair stays healthy and thriving through all of your good hair days.
We love Melu Hair Shield because not only is it a top-notch protectant, but it also reduces frizz, prevents static, and leaves your hair extra shiny. The spray formulation is awesome because it can be applied to both wet and dry hair – which is especially useful if you’re using hot tools to refresh second or third day hair.
“I can’t say enough good things about this product; it smells nice, makes my hair feel soft and doesn’t leave any sort of residue. I recently went back to my hairdresser to get a trim, and she said that my hair felt significantly softer and had fewer split ends than the last time I went for a haircut. The only two things I changed were adding this and an occasional leave-in conditioner to my beauty regiment. Thank you, Davines, for making my transition from short to long hair easier!”
“I color treat my hair regularly and had noticed that my ends were very dry and damaged. I could see a difference with my first use of Melu Hair Shield. My hair was soft and shiny! I have been using this product for two weeks now and my ends are softer and less brittle. I will definitely keep using it. Oh and to top it off… this stuff smells great too.”
